Watching me some Die Hard 4 tonight.
I find it amazing that anyone can have a normal conversation with Jon McClane. The movie ends with a bunch of banter.
"HaHa! The entire United States is now post-Katrina, but that Mac guy is kinda cute. What do you think Daddy?"
"I think it's weird that he thought it was funny when I threatened to beat him to death for checking you out honey. He just spent the last day witnessing me murder bad guys on a scale that most people would find impossible to cope with. Oh yeah, Yippee-Ki-Yay Motherfucker. Yippe-Ki-Yay."
John McClane is an outright psychopath in this movie. Long before things get personal, he nearly kills himself launching a car at a helicopter. THEN it gets personal! THEN! The glee this dude takes in the death of the "bad guys" is infectious and disturbing. I remember Maclane being capable, tough, hard-headed, risky, all kindsa cool, but this fucker is outright wacky. A few too many explosions and drops on the head for our hero. His deathwish is on a Johnny Knoxville scale (only fictional, if you really want to see something creepy, take a good look at Johnny in Jackass II, something ain't right with that boy).
Nonetheless, this movie did rock out with it's cock out.
